The International Day of Happiness comes as the UAE is entrenching its position, maintaining its first place among the Arab countries for the sixth consecutive year, according to World Happiness Report 2020. The UAE also maintained its advanced position globally and surpassed many developed countries and economies in the global report issued annually by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).

Abu Dhabi is the world’s safest city for the fifth consecutive year in Numbeo’s Quality of Life index. Topping 431 cities is a testament to the security and stability Abu Dhabi enjoys.

The UAE attaches great importance to achieving happiness, especially during the Covid-19 crisis.

The country adopted a wide range of measures aimed at immunisation and safety of the community — maintaining the continuity and quality of all services, securing social and economic stability — which contributed to tranquillity throughout this period.

The government’s care for the happiness of the community during this crisis was not confined to the economic, health and service aspects, but extended to include psychosocial support through campaigns and programmes.

At the international level, the UAE medical and humanitarian aid that flows to all parts of the world continues to be the most prominent safety valve for the most vulnerable and impoverished groups.
